Finally someone discussing VIN News. It is crazy how the current site works with all the ads. The pages never load because it is constantly checking for ads. I seriously stopped checking the website ever since
I think this deserves a thread of its own

I only check the mobile site. He always had ads between the stories, he simply didn't have advertisers.

But about the load time, can you alaborate, because I'm not having that issue. ( Btw, what browser do you use )

i don't know if it's been mentioned or if this even makes sense.
seems like people don't know too much about the forums site. i was thinking of a way to drive traffic to this site leveraging ddms. you could have a post like once a week or once a month or something titled- things you may have missed that were on the forums. for example the brookstone coupon thing from today or any other glitch or price mistake that goes dead in no time. in there you would also be able to feature previews of great TRs like the Icelandic one or the upcoming Cuba one. basically anything from Something Fishy :)
Maybe a feed either banner or sidebar of trending threads on DDF (including or excluding JS depending just how much traffic u want )

I can't stand #4
Just my 2

Look at VIN mobile site where between every article there are 4 ads.

Sites like that are why I installed UBlock Origin on Firefox Mobile...

I don't usually mind ads, but sometimes...

See this before and after:

I will do that.  But i still dont understand,  if tormenting people is the only way your site is making money then i think you should reconsider your business model ;D

Totally agree ;)

I've been looking for a fix for that for years, I think I just found it by adding this to functions.php

<?php
add_filter('comment_flood_filter', '__return_false');
?>

Let me know if you still encounter it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
